We are growing rapidly and looking for the most passionate educators to join us. 

Axiom needs instructors to serve as both faculty members and innovators in our expansion. Instructors will design and apply creative lesson plans in traditional subjects, non-traditional subjects, and in supporting unique learners. They will also work on projects from developing educational standards in other nations to supporting charter school reform. 

Through these projects that support our mission statement, instructors will have many opportunities for growth and promotion. As we open more centers, we are looking to hire business managers and educational managers from within.

Therefore, instructors must be available to work afternoons and evenings. A typical work week is Sunday-Thursday OR Tuesday-Saturday.
